Spoken to some staff in supermarket about getting in food for people who need help getting food because:
they are unable to get to the shop
cannot get a delivery arranged
(providing food for homeless, etc. will be covered further in another section)
Some issues come up about:
- will the shop have restrictions on quantity they will sell?
- logistics, e.g. own vehicle, taxi, volunteers or community transportation may be available
- social contact - is it a good idea anyway?
- how to arrange payment at shop (and collecting if appropriate)
- being aware of scams
